Elysium Health Inc. is a business that has been working in the business of biotechnology since 2014. It is a privately held company sporting about less than 50 employees.
The company of Elysium Health works with clinicians and scientists from all around the world. The biotech firm has a clear mission and it is to help people live healthier and longer lives. Elysium Health takes scientific and medical advances and translated them into products that work on a cellular level.
The biotech firm has been working on its first product. It is a proprietary formulation which is made of only two ingredients. The product is an anti-aging pill that has been in development for the past couple of years. The company and the development of the product are funded by the MIT biologist Leonard Guarente who is at the age of 62 and believes that by tweaking our metabolism we can slow down the process of aging.
Elysium Health’s product is called Basis. it will be sold over the counter as vitamin pills. Due to the fact that the pills are branded as neutraceuticals, Basis does not require going through the FDA and their clinical trials. Such tests can take decades to find out if a drug can play the same role in increasing a human’s lifespan as they could in a mice or a worm. That is also a reason why Basis might not be the end-all-be-all solution for the aging process.
So what is the medical science behind Basis? The pills contain a compound called NAD. That stand for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. NAD is used by the cells to carry out metabolic reactions such as releasing energy from glucose for example. The NAD compound is believed to have an effect similar to a low-calorie diet. Feeding mice less has been making them live longer according to some studies.
The drug will be available only on the official website of the biotech firm Elysium Health. for sixty dollars, one can receive a supply for 30 days, and for an ongoing subscription, the price is 50 dollars. The vitamins of Basis are meant as a dietary supplement and not as a substitute for food. In fact, since the pills will enhance metabolic reactions, one should make sure to eat accordingly so that there are no adverse reactions.
The biotech firm of Elysium Health has several respected sponsors behind ts back. Leonard Guarente used to be a part of Sirtris Pharmaceuticals which also studied anti-aging compounds. The company, however, was purchased by the company of GlaxoSmithKline which ceased the early trials. Other sponsors are Dan Alminana, working as CFO, and Eric Marcotulli who is the chief executive officer of the biotech firm.
